Brigid's Cloak : An Ancient Irish Story, Paperback / softback Book

Brigid's Cloak : An Ancient Irish Story Paperback / softback

Illustrated by Helen Cann


The wind groaned and swirled that night and likely it seemed to tear the thatch from the roof.

But when the baby gave her first cry, the wind shushed to a whisper and the stars began to sing. Brigid's Cloak retells an ancient tale about one of Ireland's most beloved saints.

On the day she is born Brigid receives a brilliant blue cloak from a mysterious Druid.

Years later, the young girl still wears the now tattered but beloved cloak while she tends her sheep.

Is it her imagination that suddenly takes her to an unfamiliar land? Or is it something far greater that leads Brigid to a crowded inn in a town called Bethlehem? Bryce Milligan's eloquently told story about Brigid is a moving tale of compassion and wonder.

Beautifully illustrated by Helen Cann, Brigid's Cloak sparkles with the timelessness of legend and the transcending power of faith.
